Over recent years, I have leaned towards buying more peaceful music as opposed to the more noisy up-tempo, noisy rock variety. In doing so, I have collected the entire series of Decca's Adagio CDs - they contain pieces that are hard to beat in terms of their serene beauty. But 'Eternal Light' tops the lot. In its quiet and contemplative way it leads you into a reflective, peaceful place where other choral or orchestral pieces would have difficulty taking you. Truly tranquil pieces of music heightened by the tender voices of the nuns and the occasional sounding of church bells. Almost unbelievable that it's available new through Amazon at such a bargain price. Very highly recommended.

Previous CDs of church music have been produced by monks. This one, for a change, features female voices. The nuns have chosen to sing some of the best of ancient church music and good modern pieces. Their tonal quality, volume control and diction are of the highest quality. Even for non-religious persons, this CD is a 'must'. One can close one's eyes for an hour and be totally at peace. The music is not awkwardly sentimental, but some is reflective and some joyful. The accompanying booklet displays the full text of all the pieces. An outstanding recording.

Uninspirational! I was disappointed with the singing on this CD because some of the voices seemed out of tune at times and lacked final polish. However, it is OK if played in the background without listening too carefully. In many respects the Sisters had to compete with and aspire to another CD purchased at the same time but which arrived a couple of days earlier. Hence the high standard of singing and recording on the CD 'The Nuns' of the Convent of St Elisabeth of Minsk had 'real body' and set the standard to which the Sisters of the Resurection fell short.

A good CD to put on in the evening when you just want to relax. No big religious feel, just soothing music.

I like this kind of music in the back ground as I do my work or just relaxing. Need that to chill out

I was very disappointed with this CD. I found the pieces irritatingly monotonous (I was not always aware when one finished and another started)and for this reason not conducive to bringing about a contemplative/meditative state. The singing is not of a particularly high quality either. All in all, I did not find this CD particularly enjoyable. Much prefer Fauré.
